Best Roofing Companies in Hillsborough NC

Everyone familiar with Hillsborough knows the charm it has, and what potential the town has in store.

And since Hillsborough has grown in popularity, roofing companies from all over the Triangle have been aggressively marketing their services to homeowners. As you can imagine, these companies are vastly different in terms of quality and reputation.

So, if you live in Hillsborough and find yourself in need of a roof replacement or roof repair, which companies should you call? Who are the best roofing companies in Hillsborough?

As one of the areas largest residential roofing contractors, On Tops Roofing has repaired or replaced tens of thousands of roofs over the past 30+ years. We meet with over 1,500 home-owners in the Triangle every year and we've heard it all... the good, the bad, and yes, the ugly. 

Since people know our thoughts (from this website) on all things "roofing", we often get asked about other roofing companies in the area.

We know we're not be the right fit for everyone, but we do want to make sure homeowners work with a company they feel they can trust. 

We never shy away from being honest with respect to our competition, so in this blog, we’ll cover:

The companies aren’t ranked in any particular order. The information we’ve gathered comes primarily from reviews and a review of the company's website. We haven’t had any personal experiences with the companies listed here, so we’re not putting them here because we owe them a favor, or because we used their service and enjoyed it. We’re putting them here because of the reviews that they’ve received because of their service to Hillsborough.

What about certified roofing companies?

One of the things we didn’t talk much about in this blog, but always tell homeowners to look for, is a roofing company that is certified by the material manufacturer that they use.

For example, GAF, one of the largest roofing material manufacturers in North America, offers three different tiers of certification to companies that use their products: Authorized, Certified, and Master Elite. CertainTeed on the other hand, has their ShingleMaster, and SELECT ShingleMaster accreditations.

The main differences between the tiers for both companies is the level of experience, and the level of warranty they can offer homeowners. A contractor that has Master Elite or SELECT ShingleMaster status has the full faith and trust of GAF and CertainTeed, respectively.

If you want to learn more about these two companies certification programs, we’ve written blogs breaking down the different tiers for each company, and what they mean for you! Click on either company’s name above to go to those blogs!
